is es o' nore than 500 universities.


ALMOST as old as the school it-
self, the University's active,
closely knit Alumni Association
has gone through a long period of
growth and evolution since the
first class of 11 graduates formed
the Society of Alumni in 1845.
Under the leadership of T. Haw-
ley Tapping, '15, general secretary,
the organization now serves as the
connecting link for thousands of
graduates and former students
with the University and, in addi-
tion, supports many campus pro-
Publishing The Michigan Alum-
nus, helping plan Michigan Club
programs and class reunions and
keeping tabs on former classmates
are among the many services the
Association perfoms for the alum-
THE ALUMNUS, official publi-
cation of the Association which
boasts over 12,000 subscribers, is
one of the most effective methods
of keeping alumni informed.
Included in the magazine are
features on campus activities, the
work of various Michigan Clubs
and news items about the activi-
ties of former classmates. The staff
is headed by Tapping, with Har-
old M. Wilson, '42, as managing
editor and Suzanne Vogt, '39, as
assistant editor.
Michigan Clubs, which are
found in many foreign countries
as well as in all sections of the
United States, have continued
to increase until there are now
almost 200 active chapters.
The globe has been divided into
13 geographic districts by the As-
sociation, and the director of each
district and field secretary, J. Stu-
art Finlayson, '48, plan the activi-
ties and programs for the clubs.
After a busy semester of tour-
ing the country showing Rose Bowl I
movies to alumni groups, Finlayson
is now attending district meetings
and final banquets held by many
clubs to conclude their year's ac-

CLASS REUNIONS, usually held
on a five-year basis, are planned
by the Class Officers Council. The
council is made up of officers of
each graduating class and is as-
sisted by Robert Morgan, '31, in
the central office.
Another important service to
alumni for keeping track of old
friends is through the files kept
on each alumnus in Alumni Me-
morial Hall. Information on any
graduate or former student can be
obtained merely by writing to the
central office here.
Activities which pertain spe-
cifically to women are handled
by the Alumnae Council, direct-
ed by Alice J. Russell, '27. It was
through the efforts of this group
that the League was built, and
Henderson House, a co-op for
women, was opened. The coun-
cil's current project is an addi-
tion for Henderson House which
would accommodate 13 addition-
al women students.
Funds for these alumnae pro-
jects and for the scholarships they
award each year, are raised large-
ly through the sale of china paint-
ed with campus scenes and the
other novel objects which the
council handles.
Probably the newest "tradition"
of the Association is the program
of awards for distinguished alumni
servicewhich was recently set up.
SThese awards are presented at the
general meeting held each year on
commencement day to those who
have rendered outstanding service
to the Association.
Presentation of souvenir book-
lets to members of clubs holding

University of Michigan day cele-
brations is another of the Associ-
ation's newer services. These an-
nual observances of the founding

ferred to as "birthday parties,"
have been held by clubs from Bos-
ton to Bombay and Ann Arbor to

sored its first professor here last semester.
